The immediate vicinity of the city of Arusha has many schools with deaf or otherwise disabled pupils. In 2017, a project was launched with the purpose of training teachers in the sign language and technology sectors. To start with, the emphasis is on mastering sign language.
The information technology training launched in 2017 is due for expansion during 2018, as soon as a sufficient number of laptops is acquired for those requiring training. The group of trainees consists 14 teachers, who are fully committed to the task and whose progress during their first year is commendable and we find this very encouraging.
